9/11 served main reason to spread chaos and Taliban idealogy has been instrumental to this. it was planted and enough evidence given by Bob woodwords in his books. muslim at large realized but brutally wounded locally.

!The word "US” has different meanings for me. I am in the US. I believe that some bad Muslims have hijacked Islam, and all are suffering. But what hurts is the fact that many Muslims support those bad Muslims, not knowing what they did to all peaceful, loving millions of Muslims. Just ask those whose visas are refused in foreign embassies for education, meeting dear ones, treatment … whatever! Before 9/11 we all lived in this world. Now we all live in a dangerous island.

Please help me with the math here: Approx 3000+ died in NYC. But, but 1 million dead in IRAQ and 35,000+ dead in Pakistan. Just because one is a superpower can it tell the rest of the world to bite the dust and invade in violation of UN charter and countries sovereignity. This is nothing short of armageddon with breaking the backs of so many nations such as Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, Mossageq of Iran, installing Al Saud regime...devastating Libya...

Well what it means to me is that it was the biggest orchestarated drama in world history and people still believe it after 10 years and blame Muslims for it while the American Govt reaped the maximum benefit from 9/11 invaded Afghanistan for the CAS oil and Gas, invaded Iraq for its oil and now is eyeing Pakistan for the oil/gas pipe line it will eventually build from CAS to Afghanistan to N.S Waziristan down to balouchistan to Gawader.All these places are regularly mentioned in US rehetorics.Woner when will the yankees finally wake up and go home before there is no home to go to.

An average guy on the streets, earning a living have no more information about the 9/11 attacks than what they know about the stock market, whats really happening in the countries politics, and what the US led invasion is about, what the "war on terrorism" is about and what the Taliban is all about. In a nutshell, extremists groups (allegedly) destroyed the world trade centers, world nation leaders took steps, both good and bad ones, country governments went to war against said extremists, and the common man got nothing. that's what people, that's all people will say. every thing else are half baked, speculated guesses.

We are all God's children and all brothers and sisters who need to learn to share. Love, compassion and forgiveness will prevail. Good luck Pakis!
